Learning Log #7

2.2 The Limit of a Function Uses of the word Limit in everyday life (speed) Roughly speaking, the Limit is the y-value that the function is approaching as x approaches a certain number. Enter the seven functions into your calculator so we can explore the concept of a limit intuitively.

From the home screen, find

Do the same for the next five functions. Write the conclusion for each limit in your notes for each problem in mathematical notation. Example of a graph from the whiteboard

The conclusions after looking at the table.

NOTES:

We only care about the values of the function near a. We do not care if there is a function value at x=a or if that value is the same as our limit.
